Edwards & Sons Apples

Donald, Jean and Brendon Edwards are premier growers & packers of quality certified organic apples. The farm is bordered by virgin eucalyptus trees and is nestled on Melbourne’s doorstep at Red Hill South. They have been growing apples for 5 generations since the first tree was planted by Don’s great grandfather in the late 1880’s. The orchard has grown with the local community until the early 1980’s when alternative farming methods were looked at due to concerns of the potential negative effects of toxic sprays on families in the area. It was not an easy path and there were many failures for every success.

In the mid 1980’s our organic principles had been put into practice and the orchard was certified organic by NASSA in 1987.
The full flavour, high colour of these apples is brought about by a combination of healthy soil and fresh clean water.
The selection of old apple varieties such as Gravenstein, Jonathan, Golden Delicious,Granny Smith along with newer varieties of Royal Gala, Pink Lady, Fuji, Sundowner and the latest variety Jazz.
Other crops grown on the certified organic orchard include Pears, Cherries, Lemons, Limes.
We also have certified organic juice that is crushed from our own fruit.
The apple juice is a big favourite and we now have the apple and pear as well.
Edward & Son have been supplying our apples since we started back in early 90s.
